Section Properties of Thin Walled Bars of Open Cross-Section

The general procedure for determining the section properties of thin walled bars of open cross-section is discussed and a simplified procedure for determining warping constants developed. For hand calculations, the simplified procedure results in a significant reduction in effort. In general, however, even the simplified procedure requires automatic computation, and a suitable system of equations is presented. T.M. Roberts
